In the past three years, Julien Chatelin has made several trips across western China photographing this transformation. With a combination of research and exploration, he spent most of his time driving through the country and seeking out these sites of change. “I was looking for these areas in development, and I would be driving and the country was a non-stop construction project,”

Bill Garrett – An Appreciation

I witnessed and was affected by the turbulence of his abrupt exit as one of 11 members of the “Futures Committee”—the “young Turks,” as we were known— commissioned to produce a “Report to the Editor.” We had been asked to provide a blueprint for the magazine in coming decades, identify weaknesses, inefficiencies, and propose solutions; in short, our mission was “to turn an elephant into a jaguar.” Garrett was fired a week after the report was published. Some of the staff blamed us.

If you’re interested in coaxing more detail from the camera, a new Dual Pixel RAW mode lets you shoot RAW files that are two times the size of a standard 5D Mark IV file. The files must be processed using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software and Canon says the Dual Pixel RAW mode is good for enhancing images taken at wide apertures.

Adam Hinton was a 26-year-old recent graduate of England’s Trent Polytechnic (now Nottingham Trent University) at the time, and he wanted to see what life in a new nation was like, particularly in industrial areas whose working class had been romanticized during Soviet rule.

Should We Care Who Took This Photo?

Aleppo airstrike Omran Dagneesh

Mahmoud Raslan’s photograph of “the boy in the ambulance” from Aleppo has struck a chord with viewers in a way that we haven’t seen since Nilüfer Demir’s image of 3-year old refugee Alan Kurdi in 2015.

My work springs more from feelings and intuition than ideas. I try to stay open and rely on my instincts. I put my antennae up and just see what is reeled in. There’s the saying most everyone is familiar with – “go with the flow.” I try not to get ahead of the flow but to follow it closely and see where it leads me. Usually I have some loose ideas but those I tend to revise in face of the photos that I’m actually making. I try not to over-determine the outcome at the onset. I try to be honest with myself about what is truly exciting and working for me.
